Pros: They relocate the mirrors.
They seem to have a good finish on them.
Cons: No instructions
Mirrors are no longer spring mounted to swing out of the way.
Could have used another washer for each side.
Plugs or screws to fill the holes left in the doors would have been nice.
Unable to use passenger mirror with the doors on.
Door limits need to be shortened to use these with the doors on.
Comments: For under $30 this is a pretty good solution for running mirrors with the doors off. I don't need mirrors to be legal, but they are convenient, especially when trailering my boat.
Installation was pretty straightforward. Instructions would have been helpful in discerning whether to put the washer on the top or the bottom. I put the black one on the top and bought a standard 3/8 washer to go on the bottom.
I purchased some 1/4 inch stainless screws to go in the hole left in the door after removing the OEM bracket. You don't need to remove the OEM bracket. I just thought it looked neater without a superfluous bracket hanging on the door. The stainless screws and the washers were less than $2 at True Value.
All in all, it is a good option. But there are some tradeoffs. I didn't want spend a lot of money and I also didn't want to have to install mirrors in the hinge holes every time I took the doors off. I think this was a pretty good decision.
